. the one thing that you can be certain of, as obama looks at syria and iran, he wants to avoid any kind of entangling war, long expedition nature war like america has fought over the last 10 years. chris: these wars, if we go into iran, does anyone think it's a quick war, in and out, without historic repercussions on the other side? >> absolutely not, which is part of the reason why nobody within the -- there are very few people in the administration that have any sort of appetite for a war in iran. the same goes with syria. we saw with the libya entanglement, we saw sort of barack obama's doctrine. he is going to be looking for very much multinational-type force. he is going to the u.n. he is looking for the french to take a lot of the lead. he is going to be -- but nobody, even with both syria and with iran, there is no nobody particularly at the pentagon who is really wanting to do this right now. and barack obama least of all. chris: michael. >> chris, this poses problems, the perception which i think is accurate of our wearyness causes problems particularly in iran. people don't be

, the syria situation. this is what actually the obama administration is evolving nowe towards a policy they call arming from behind, where they're acquiescing in the arming effort of the saudis and kataris, and soon you'll see the british and friend p french but not doing it ourselves.h we have gone from being heavily engaged to being disengaged. and i think the pendulum has to swing back more towards the center given all the challenges in world today.al >> you can over-learn theou lessons of history. we have over-learned iraq. i mean we really have over-learned iraq. we go back oorm, it was said a while ago that the vietnam syndrome, the vietnam conflict, the vietnam syndrome was buriedi in gulf war one. now we have to bury the iraq syndrome, i think, both my colleagues are on the mark one this, we can't always think that iraq is waiting for usk everywhere, and i think the lesson now in syria is to find a-- our moral and strategic abdication in syria is completely unacceptable. >> rose: i end this conversation with this question-- what should we do in syria? one by one. >> look, we're

, there is no punishment assad of syria using chemical weapons. obama said same thing about iran, north korea, no ex-nukes for you guys. what does that mean? if his credibility is zero because he hasn't stood by the red line i think that is problem. the problem is the rest of the world using chemicals. bill: how you interpret that if you're leading some other nations in the region either you have them or want to have them. one more question. >> yeah. bill: it appears over the past seven days and i think this paralleled to president obama's trip to israel that this story moved at a level it has not moved before. >> absolutely. bill: senator kerry in iraq and afghanistan with iran sandwiched between the two of them. do you get the sail sense and if so are with is it going? >> i think it is speeding up, whatever happens in syria i don't think it will drag on for another two years. the problem with it once assad leaves and it collapses, it gets worse. it doesn't get better. there are a lot of our militias, there are democratic pro-democracy guys and islamic rad kls and al qaeda elements in the groups. t

territories and jordan while a reinvigorated peace process is one goal, more pressing concerns for the obama white house are the threats from iran and the effect of the relentless bloodshed in syria. we want to begin with some analysis about the president's trip this morning with our chief foreign correspondent richard engel back from the region. he is in new york this morning. i have david brooks of "the new york times" and e.j. dionne with me in washington. richard, let me start with you. the president called on israel to renew efforts to the creation of a palestinian state. he helped restore the israeli/turkish relationship. so what else do you think he can return with that he can actually build upon? >> reporter: well, i think the reconciliation between turkey and israel is something that's very important because i wouldn't see the chances right now of an israeli/palestinian reconciliation but i do think the middle east recognizes that there are urgent regional matters as syria implodes that the region needs to have some sort of summit and turkey is going to play a big part of that. so i

security advisor zbigniew brzezinski talks about the situation in iraq, the obama administration's handling of the civil war in syria, and iran's nuclear program. army major general h.r. mcmaster also speaks on this panel, hosted by the carnegie endowment that marks the 10th anniversary of the iraq war. this is about an hour and 10 minutes. >> okay, i hope that you're able to get some substance. we have explored now in some depth the state of iraq today, and we've looked at what the war has cost the american taxpayer and the american economy. and how that relates to the fiscal problems that we're facing today. and we turn now to the geopolitical lessons of this conflict. i think the heart of this discussion. one of the great strengths of this nation, indeed, i would say one of our defining characteristics, is the american willingness, inclination, capacity always to look to the future. to embrace it. compatibility has driven our growth for several centuries, and certainly accounts for some of our greatest achievements. but it has a heavy cost. and that cost is that we are far too quick to t
in washington where by all accounts it is president obama personally who has been the most resistant to increasing the u.s. commitment to aiding the rebels in syria in anyway for a variety of reasons is a very complicated conflict obviously. but, you know, from the sense is that i have, secretary kerry is speaking to some of his credibility in the job and saying we have to offer something more. we have to change our strategy and present something that changes the calculus on the ground in syria or we're not going to breakthrough this. >> ifill: the quick sandals for secretary of states or presidents for decades has been the arab-israeli peace process. do we detect any shifting toward more engagement on the part of the u.s. in that process or is that yet another thankless task waiting for the secretary? >> president obama just made this important trip to israel. i think a very necessary trip and so he's now established a much better relationship with the israeli people and some ability to expert influence there. so that prepares the ground a bit but the actual conflict itself i think
barack obama know what we don't know pledging to use american power against iran and getting more deeply involved in syria? the american mood when it comes to using force feels like 1915, the end of vietnam. after that war, reluctance to commit power abroad was called vietnam syndrome. then came desert storm in 1991 and the first george bush told us that the lightning victory there had banished vietnam wearyness. >> it's a proud day for america and by god, we have kicked the vietnam syndrome once and for all. chris: after the second george bush launched two long wars, many feel war wearyness like against vietnam. against the wearyness, how should we take this week's statements from this president on veryia and iran? >> we are clear that the use of chemical weapons against the syrian people would be a serious and tragic mistake and i will repeat, all options are on the table. we will do what is necessary to prevent iran from getting t
to decide who gets the arms. the cia's covert backing comes despite the obama administration's public support for solely non-lethal aid to the rebels. meanwhile, the cia has further increased its role in syria by feeding intelligence to rebel fighters for use against the syrian government. the wall street journal reports the move comes as part of the u.s. effort to tamp down on islamist militants in syria by aiding secular forces. secretary of state john kerry has urged iraq to take action to stop iranian flights carrying arms to the al-assad regime to iraqi airspace. john kerry made the comments during a surprise visit to baghdad where he met with iraqi prime minister of maliki. >> i made it very clear that for those of us who are engaged in an effort to see president al- assad step down and to see a democratic process take hold with the transitional government according to the geneva communicate, those of us engaged in that effort, anything that supports president al-assad is problematic. and i made it very clear to the prime minister that the overflights from iran are in fact helpi
president talking about contentious issues involving iraq and syria. cnn's nick paton walsh is traveling with the secretary this morning. nick, can you give us the latest on this trip? >> certainly. this is, of course, the secretary's sixth trip since president obama's first term, but really the most acrimonious atmosphere to walk in, still the hangover of secretary of defense chuck hagel's trip here, in which president karzai intimated that, in fact, the u.s. had been working with the taliban in some way. we have as we landed received news that the handover of the facility has finally been completed. that will remove one of the thorns in the side of this relationship. and there has been a recent agreement to change force structures in wardak province. that's also been contentious. there will be a meeting between hamid karzai and john kerry. the two having met for a number of occasions before, and said to have a good pornal relationship. but i can't really stress what an awkward time this has been for the united states and how much a mission, really, john kerry has to try and patch this
of the efforts the obama administration has made to try to iron it out. >> bill: finally, there remains the issue, of course, of syria. i know john kerry warned iraq, you should not be allowing iran to make these flights and providing support to the government of syria. >> right. >> the slight crossing in iraq and israel's convinced that syria did use chemical weapons recently. the united states investigating. what's the latest on that? >> the jury was still out on that. the president has sort of set a couple of different red lines if you will on that issue. last year, he said if the syrians sort of even got ready to use them we could act. the white housedes that back and said no, only actually ice would bring us in. they came up in jordan. jordan has soon an influx of almost half a million refugees from syria and they are expecting if the fighting continues there over the course of this year by the end of the year, they will have a million refugees, which something on the order of 10% of their population or something like that. >> imagine. >> you know, we
